I finally took some pics of my backup camera and mirror with LED display today. I used Ofer's harness and the mirror he recommended (got it on ebay). I used a Sony camera (model Sony XA-R800C). It works great. Thanks again, Ofer.

By the way, I know some people have said they are worried this mirror is bigger than the stock mirror. It might be a little bigger, but I think someone could have put it in my car when I wasn't looking and I might have never noticed. I notice no difference in my view out the windshield with this mirror.

Me too. I just have the mirror installed right now and I think it gives you greater visibility.

So here is a link to a template I made for the GM camera system only.


http://www.gmpartshouse.com/installdocs/camaro-gm-back-up-camera-template.pdf


For the larger square, on the outside, it was just about exactly the size of in between the license plate lamps. The inside square is the area needed to be cutout for the GM camera. The inside square drawn is slightly smaller than you'll need to have the camera fit through. I figured it would be better to start out a little small and then you can trim it and customize it to your liking.


Believe it or not I have a couple of hours into the template. The original was done on a piece of cardboard, which I traced to post here.


The small rectangle is almost exactly the size of each side of the camera bracket. I gave you that template as well. I wanted my holes to be just about perfectly centered, and on both sides, since I am OCD so I made the template.


This is for the GM camera system only. If you don't like my template, then don't use it

Ofer,
I want this mod, all the pics from other members looks great!
quick question, do all the cameras you sell have the "night vision" infrared to be able to view easily at night?
Also send me a PM so I can place an order
Thanks,
Kevborr

So for the cars that have the plastic piece between the license plate lights, does the camaro you provide just snap or screw in that spot after the plastic piece is removed?

I meant on my car there is what looks like a black plastic cap or snap in piece where everyone is cutting a hole, it definately comes out, I was just wondering how the install of the camera works on the vehicles with that black plastic cap?
